Innovation in Business Strategy: Leadership in Cloud Computing / SaaS (Software as a Service)
CPDI, provider of voice and data billing software for on demand services
CPDI engaged us to find strategic alternatives to increasing their enterprise value by exploring ways to leverage their legacy telco billing experience in the SaaS (Software as a Service) space. Working with their existing product set , we helped them update and modernize their UI.

How do you reach customers, prospects, employees and others in a meaningful way? We concur with author and sales coach Keith Rosen, who suggests that connecting starts with enrollment. It's the art of grabbing people's attention and motivating them to embrace your position, and while the linked article discusses it in relation to selling, the concept applies to any business process that requires a shared mindset in support of change and new possibilities.
